|Additional Information:||This paper was considered as 'ground breaking' by one of the referees. The paper described the first robot to employ only biomass for power (ie no other fuel/energy sources). This has led to further research in action selection theory, energy balancing in hybrid machines. Industry (including Microsoft futures R&D) have expressed interest in developing the technology. This publication attracted the national and international media. Ideas developed became elements of a successful EU FP-6 funding application for £250,000 with a duration of 3 years. The paper is used in the teaching of robotics degree courses and the work will form part of a chapter of a US authored book reviewing MFCs.|
